Mission Statement

The City of Shreveport Swim Team (COSST) is a competitive swimming program designed to give each individual swimmer the opportunity to develop his or her talent to its fullest potential and to better the athlete as a person.   We would like to keep swimmers in swimming as long as possible.  This is the only way a swimmer will ever reach his or her full potential.   We are at the same time hoping to improve the athlete as a person through sportsmanship, team pride, individual pride, self-discipline, and competition.


All members of the City of Shreveport Swim Team and the COSST Booster Club are united in our efforts to continually recruit new swimmers and their families into our program by projecting to our community a very positive image of what competitive swimming is all about.   In the process of striving for success and recognition both in and out of the water by always being the best that we can be, we are preparing our team to be ranked among the top three USS teams in the state of Louisiana.  Our goals will always include training our swimmers to become regionally and nationally ranked as they mature through our program.

Our season runs from September to July.  For information about joining our team mid-season, please contact Coach Sara at
